So having got one of these i follow the instructions and set up the computer along with the wheel magnet,

On a ride yesterday i noticed that the distance monitor on the computer does not seem to tally up with my gps watch..

i have set the computer up with the 2068 setting.

My question is have i used the correct setting for my road bike ?

Many thanks.

    Depends on the size of your tyres. I think 2096 is about right for 23mm tyres - to check, you need to do measure how far in millimetres your bike travels for one complete revolution of a wheel, as accurately as you can. This is the number you need to enter into your speedo.

    Ah obviously i have set it up wrong then as my tyres are 23mm..

    Many thanks...Time to get the tape measure out then. :D

    2096 is the right number for 700 x 23mm tyres.
